D.I.Y Honey face mask

Lately I've been completely obsessed with natural products, home remedies, and really anything organic. Im that person that has tried everything and saw little or really no results. But since I've changed my face regimen its really improved my crappy skin. When it comes down to face masks this is my go to! Super easy and perfect for those still undergoing puberty (pimples). Seriously, when does it end? Also please, before you try this mask make sure that your skin isn't allergic to honey. 
Alright! Its time to get au-naturel. 


#1. Container for your mask

#2. One teaspoon of Nutmeg

#3. One teaspoon of Cinnamon

#4. Two tablespoon of Unfiltered/Raw honey

Things you should know:
- You can use the face mask 2-3 times a week.
-You get better results when applying on after a shower.
- Wear a shirt you don't care dirtying 

Step one: Pour honey into container

Step two: Add nutmeg and cinnamon

Step three: Stir  all of the ingredients until it has gone from chalky to gooey.
 I personally like using a chopstick for this step. I find that whenever I use a spoon
 I make a bigger mess.

Step four: You dont even have to wait! You can use it this second. Make sure that
 you apply the mask to a clean and patient face because you will be leaving this 
mask on for 30 minutes. I love applying this right before i shower. It saves me time
 having to wash it off over the sink, and then have to clean the sink.


D.i.y pizza cookie

There are many things I enjoy in this world. Two of which are chocolate 
and pizza. So I thought I'd combine the two! Plus Im personally not a cake person.
 Don't get me wrong, they're beautiful I just prefer the taste of a warm cookie or brownie. 

Naturally (for me) this the perfect alternative & would be a blast to do with kids. This particular pie was for a birthday girl, whom was pleasantly surprised to see a huge cookie in a pizza box! Now if your thinking this is just too much chocolate, you can easily substitute the nutella for some strawberry/raspberry preserves. I actually kept fighting with myself on what to use for the "pizza sauce". I knew some sort of fruit preserve would look much more like a pizza, but my sweet tooth couldn't deny nutella. 


#1. Two packets of chocolate chip cookie dough

#2. Nutella

#3. Four mini packets of M&Ms 

#4. Shaved coconut

Step one: Let your two packets of cookie dough thaw, that you can easily 
form a ball with the dough.

Step two: Spread your cookie dough on a pizza pan (I added grease, but 
its not necessary). Don't forget to create a "crust" around the edges 
when kneading the dough. When your ready to place it in the oven make 
sure you follow the cookie dough instructions. When you remove the 
pizza from the oven let it cool for about 20 minutes or until the dough has cooled. 

Step three: Spread nutella in a circular motion. 
Make sure to leave an inch around without nutella.

Step four: Now is the time to make your pizza slices. If you wait till
the end the cookie will harden, making it impossible to cut the cookie
without breaking it.

Step five: Add your pepperoni (Chocolate M&Ms). I tried to make sure each slice had 
a mixture of colors and kept the doubles to a minimum.

Step six: Add the cheese (shredded coconut)! This was my favorite part. 
I loved spreading the cheese just like I would for a pizza.

Step seven: & now for the Pièce de résistance. 
             A pizza box for your pizza cookie!

Step eight: Deliver your pizza pie to a special friend! 
            Or have yourself a pizza night with a side of ice cream!

D.I.Y citrus body scrub

I'm so sad to see summer leave. Yet I am jumping with joy that I'm going to be able to wear sweaters, splash in rain puddles, eat 10x more than I already do, and everything else that comes with fall/winter.  This scrub is my way of holding on to summer by a string. 

1. 1 cup of white pure cane sugar
2. 1/2 a cup of coconut oil / olive oil
3. 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
4. 1 lemon

1. Place sugar in a bowl along with vanilla, zest 
of one whole lemon, and the juice of half the lemon.
 **Remember to zest first then cut the lemon.

2. Slowly pour in the coconut oil/ olive oil and stir. That
way you can see how liquidy you'll want your scrub. 

3. Place in a container or jar, tie a string with a label and voila!

Now your ready to use it in the shower! I love to scrub it all over my legs, then lather on my shaving cream. You will not believe how clean of a shave you'll get. OH and a helpful tip is to shower 6 mins after you've entered the shower. It prevents ingrown hairs.

The days I feel like sharing I make double the amount. I like to place them in the fridge, that way when a birthday comes along I'm prepared at all times! Did I mention it smells delicious? Im not going to lie, I've had a taste or two. Believe me you'll get curious too.
